On article Canon will add C-Log to the EOS 5D Mark IV for $99 (461 comments in total)

I love the fake outrage by people who don't even own the camera nor would use C-log if they did.

I'm pretty sure that Canon's actual cinematography customers are excited at being able to get a useful hardware update for $100 instead of having to wait for the next model.

tkbslc: Why does it seem like only Apple based computer hardware makes it to the news feed?

Lots of raid boxes, too. But this one, and the LaCie brand, is Apple targeted.

avicenanw: Pay for an update? Canon is doing this while Sony is eating their cake with the A9.

The only people interested in the A9 over an A7R II would be sports photographers, and Sony doesn't have the lenses for them.

nekrosoft13: Canon and Nikon both are having emergency "WT* are we going to do" meetings right now.

Given that this is targeted toward action and sports photography, I don't think they have anything to worry about until Sony releases some more big and fast lenses. 100-400 f5.6 doesn't exactly cut it on the football sideline.

So this is pretty much a full frame Olympus E-M1 II?

Daspletosaurus: 24 megapixels and no AF microadjustment?

I had the previous version of that lens, the 18-135mm STM, and it was very sharp, even for pixel peepers. I had a 15-85mm at the same time and I kept the 18-135mm as it was just as good but I preferred the extra zoom.

Dante Birchen: The fact that it has a pentamirror instead of a pentaprism disqualifies it. APS-c has a small VF as it is. Don't cut costs like that.

Don't cut costs? The whole point of this is a cut-cost 80D! If you don't want to cut costs get that instead.

IdM photography: If you buy a camera for photography and not video, the Pentax KP seems like a much better option...

Unless you like to buy lenses for your camera.

The typical customer for a camera at this level would do more harm than good with micro-adjust.

What a waste of money. You can buy a decent used film compact for $20. Or if you want "lomo" unpredictability, buy expired disposable cameras on ebay for $4 each.

dark goob: Sony also did this to another Japanese "N" company: Nintendo.

Nintendo Wii U kind of bombed, but so did the PS Vita. If you add up total console sales (portable+home), Nintendo actually wins thanks to 3DS sales.

Nintendo also won last gen, too. Wii and DS outsold PSP and PS3 by a good margin.

Nintendo is in fine shape and has massive cash reserves and new console that sold 2.4 million in the first month.

WillWeaverRVA: $5,500?! Who on earth would buy this thing? I mean, you could get a similar lens at the same focal length with that max aperture (or faster), WITH AF, for 1/4 to 1/3 the cost...

I guess you are right, but I certainly can't imagine someone nutty enough to buy this lens for a crop camera! It's hard enough to fathom someone doing so for a FF one.

tkbslc: I hope nobody buys this expensive drive for image storage. There's very little real world difference between an SSD and a HDD for viewing and editing images.

That has not been my experience. Reading an image into RAM is a sequential read and happens very quickly on HDD already. I never mentioned video, but typically CPU is the bottleneck for working on videos, not I/O.

TMHKR: With the possibility of CHDK team releasing the hack for it in the future (with RAW support), it would make night and day difference, regardless of the sensor size!

You'll get to see all the distortion and aberrations in all their RAW glory.

PeteHolland89: Just a personal thing, but if you take a picture at 960mm focal length, can you really say you were there?

Technically you are never "there", you are always "here".

In reply to:

Internet Enzyme: The slow aperture on the tiny sensor with the required super fast shutter speed needed for that focal length means that the telephoto end will be unusable in any conditions besides direct sunlight.

Possibly. Or you'll find the camera picking ISO 400 quite often, meaning very noisy shots even on an overcast day.

Gal Root: No GPS! No, it won't be my travel camera. Built in GPS is a must. If you ever used Google Photos you would know how much it improves the search. I have it on my old Canon D20 travel camera (battery life is great), no reason this camera shouldn't have one too.

They've offloaded that to your phone via an App for pretty much every camera these days.

You are talking the LR database. That should be on an internal SSD, as should the pagefile. Where the actual image files are stored makes little difference.

Not FF. They also have the EF-S 24mm f2.8 pancake for $150 if we are ignoring crop factor.
